yeah... if #19 doesn't have continuity to the TCU pin, then you are on the wrong pin.

Pin #66, when you are done, should have continuity to the bottom clutch pedal switch. if it doesn't then you did something wrong.

Also the wire at pin 19 will not be black but yellow/red. Look on page 41 of the attached howto for a picture of the ecu plug with pin 19 and pin 66 locations. It is very easy to mis count the pins.
The yellow/red from the ecu goes to the tcu plug. Check it’s continuity. This wire you need to connect to the yellow/blue wire in the tcu plug and it is this same yellow/blue wire (from the pin 9 of the old 175 relay connector under the dash) you connect to the clutch pedal cruise switch and should, from this point, give you continuity back to the yellow/red wire that you moved from pin 19 to the empty slot of pin 66.

Not sure on the Jetta, but on my 2 2001 bugs, they show no cruise light when engaged.

I forgot which cars have cruise lights, but I'm pretty sure it's only automatics... maybe Marin can chime in...

I wonder where you could connect to have a light while cruise is engaged put a optional light somewhere

My 2001 Golf (factory automatic) always had a cruise light. You could probably swap in a cluster with a cruise light. Keep in mind the cruise light is rather worthless from the factory. It comes on when the cruise switch is turned to on. The cruise light in some clusters can be modified to come on only when the cruise is engaged. The cluster currently my Golf is that way.

Just finished converting my 02 Golf to a 5 spd and loving it! This forum was really helpful.



I have a question though. I am noticing a lot more engine noise coming into the cabin and it seems to be coming from the centre console area and also telegraphing in through the shifter. Has anyone else had this issue? I was wondering if I didn't put the heat shield on exactly right or something. The only other thing I could see that might be causing it is that one of my coolant lines leftover from the automatic is touching one of the shift cables (the part that doesn't move) so that could be sending engine vibrations up the cable.

If you can feel the vibration, then I would check and recheck everything. Coolant lines shouldn't rattle- and they shouldn't be touching anything either- they will get holes worn through them. If you just think the noise is louder, you may just be hearing clutch noise- especially if you used a smf conversion or a Lightweight flywheel.

It is not as much that I can feel the vibrations as much as I can hear them when you get close to the shifter. The coolant line that touches is one of the leftover trans cooler lines and it touches at the metal elbow at the back of the engine, so there is no way for me to move the coolant line out of the way as it is fixed (unless I bend the elbow) and the shift linkage is fixed by the bracket on the trans.


I have already anticipated the wear and have placed another piece of hose over the line as a protective jacket.


I did indeed install a SMF, but the noise I am hearing is quite distinctly engine noise coming from the centre console area.
